|Ikari III: the Rescue (arcade)|
Genre: Beat 'em up
Released: USA: 1989
|from the arcade intro|
The presidential candidate's child has been kidnapped by an enemy terrorist party.In a missed opportunity of art imitating art accidentally imitating art that imitated the original art, one of the abandoned plot ideas for Rambo V was to have Rambo rescue the president's kidnapped daughter which is the mission in the NES version of this game. Even that single Rambo-ed film would have been closer to an Ikari III film than if Hollywood ever tried to make one on purpose.
Fun fact: While the helicopter in the beginning of the game looks a lot like the same UH-1N helicopter seen in Rambo: First Blood part II, the helicopter in this game has four blades like the Bell 412, an offshoot of the UH-1N/Bell 212.
